Etymology[edit]

From Old French almanach, from Medieval Latin almanachus, from Andalusian Arabic الْمَنَاخ(al-manāḵ, almanac, calendar), from Arabic الْمُنَاخ(al-munāḵ, climate) or Late Ancient Greek ἀλμενιχιακά (almenikhiaká, calendar), perhaps of Coptic origin. The middle syllable -man- may be cognate with moon and month, or else was influenced by Proto-Indo-European *mens- (moon, month).
